Creating the Future
 How many of us have wished we could predict the future? When I was a child, I was really fascinated with the aspect of traveling into the future and being able to know what the world would be like many years from now. Actually, I'm still fascinated by that. There is one thing that I now know to be true. We can all predict our futures. In fact, most of us do it on a daily basis, some of us more than others.

There is no real trick to this, just awareness, that whatever we think about all day, we get. If you want to know what the future will be, take a bit of time to write down what you thought about last week. This means the things you think about when your mind is wandering, or when you are reviewing the day you just had, or the day you are about to have. What do you think about when you are getting ready to walk into a meeting, to greet a loved one, or to start the day? These repetitive thoughts become the life we lead, the filter through which we view the world, and the energy that we attract into our lives. As a leader, this becomes even more important in groups.

There is a concept of "shared mind" that involves the collective consciousness created by the stories and commonly held pictures of a group of people. Understanding this and engaging it is a crucial aspect of leadership. So, predict the future? Absolutely. In fact, we are creating it every day, whether we realize it or not, or even whether we believe it or not. Ready to learn more? Take a moment, take some notes, and change your life.

Cheers, Jeff
